Sturm College of Law
Vaccine mandates, Vaccination rates
Ending the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic through vaccination will require sufficient uptake, possibly through mandatory vaccination. At present, certain vaccines are required for children to attend school. Although vaccine mandates for adults are legal, they have generally been applied narrowly to select groups, such as health care workers, rather than broadly enforced. We surveyed the US public to assess acceptability of COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
